            This play marks the debut of RBR’s new drama director Reuben Jackson who states of the play, “It is one man’s search (Salieri) for the meaning of life through music and his act of revenge against God when he is confronted with the true absolute genius of Mozart. It is a character study in the nature of evil, court politics, love and musical genius.”
